In cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management will issue a corrected Notice of Intent to address sage-grouse in 10 additional National Forest System Lands and Resource Management Plans and formally extended the comment period through March 23,.

The BLM and the Forest Service are seeking public comment on issues that should be addressed in Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) and Supplemental Environmental Impact Statements (SEIS) that will evaluate and provide greater sage-grouse conservation measures in land use plans in 10 Western states.

The forest lands include the Manti-LaSal National Forest, as well as the Ashley, Wasatch Cache, Uinta, Dixie and Fishlake National Forests.

The BLM and the Forest Service aim to incorporate conservation measures into all affected Land Management Plans by September 2014 in order to make the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) timeline for making a listing decision on this species. As a result, the accompanying EIS's/SEIS's will be conducted under expedited timeframes.

All comments and submissions to be considered for the environmental analysis process must be received by the BLM by close of business on March 23, 2012.
